with Lynn Peterfreund

Thursdays, 11-1 PM (EST), March 4 – April 22, 2021 via ZOOM

Limited to 6 participants

this workshop is full.  email to put your name on the waiting list.

This class combines instruction in monotype techniques with guidance in looking at your work, and the work of the group with an eye (and mind) to amplify what you want to express in your prints.

This class is organized  around the elements of art as they are expressed in monotype: line with different tools and trace monotype, shape work with edge control and stencil use, value and color instruction with ink modification and layering. Composition and expressive content will be our theme throughout.  Using Akua Intaglio Inks, a water soluable soy oil ink, we’ll cover the basics of handling ink, paper, printing, studio organization, tools, brayers, and rollers,  and stencil materials.

The goal is to offer students more fluency with monotype language with a structured approach to exploring its vocabulary.
